in the last segment. we talked about the video that president obama was filmed at hampton university five years ago and fox news is going crazy with it, drudge is going crazy with it. i want to hear from you about it. lisa from wisconsin. >> i watched the whole tape. there isn't anything offensive that obama said at all. they're throwing crap on the walls. i have no idea what they were talking about. i have how the republicans think they're down for a while in the midwest. you know, once you have a coke problem, you can't get rid of it. it's like the great lie they're lying to themselves, like denial thing. >> they've got a k-o-c-h problem. that's for sure. >> they'll be down for a while. that means they have hope. it's only going to get worse for them. i don't know how long it will take, but they'll never be up again anywhere, ever. >> lisa, i'm from michigan, so i feel for you there in wisconsin. we've seen ads pulled out of pennsylvania, out of michigan. i hear they're back up in wisconsin. that's maybe to keep paul ryan alive so he has a job in congress right? >> i don't know, i am so
. it will be fascinating tomorrow night. a story surfaces in the right wing bloggosphere. we will play a portion of a video being billed as president obama's other race speech. it's a speech from back in 2007. parts of it have been out there for a long time. questions are now being asked about the timing and legitimacy of this tape being released. we'll play a portion of the tape, hear from our panel. you can decide for yourself. we'll be right back.

that is focused on barack obama. he was supposed to be doing the same thing but got sidetracked and badly by this video. he will be ablepresident to get over this. he has to hope that is not the majority of people. the fact that a majority of people do not approve of how barack obama has handled the economy, but ultimately those people will say i am done with a guy who is currently in office. let's give the other guy a chance. the interview he has done and he is going to continue to do all of those things are an attempt to shift the conversation. good >> even republicans have said he is running and in that campaign. -- an inept campaign. he is trying to suggest he took responsibility for these comments. did you see thus splitting hairs? >> i agree with that. they blame the campaign. we did the post mortem on the hillary clinton campaign, and the conclusion was that her campaign did not serve her. ultimately it is the job of the candidate. the candidate is the one that puts a person in charge of raising money. the candidate is the person who should decide on the message of the day. i think
. >>> also ahead, video resurfaces of president obama as a candidate five years ago, talking about racial issues in the wake of hurricane katrina, and now the white house has issued its response. this seems to be the election of the surprise video here. so now it is the president's turn. >> it is october. >> five weeks and counting. >> yep. >>> and then the anchorwoman who used her own newscast to respond to criticism about her waktd. her on-air message has triggered a nationwide outpouring. >>> later this half-hour, caught on tape. nicki minaj lets loose with a blue streak, cursing out mariah carey in a big "american idol" battle. we'll have it coming up later in ""the skinny."" we talked a few weeks ago how the two divas are not fans of each other. now, again, more video, surprise video this morning, nicki and mariah, claws out. >> good publicity and good press for the show. ratings will be up, you know that. >> we love each other in case you were wondering. >>> first, american airlines in something of a thaw in the frigid relations between the company and its pilots' union. >> they wil
doubles down on obama's strategy with this video that came out. so they're in a real situation here and they've got a short time to right it. >> it's offensive if you unpack and think about it. what he's saying is we're all stupid. we don't remember that the polls have shown republicans up a lot. and secondly this idea that people in the media, if their personal views go one way, the product of the reporting goes another way. i don't think there's resonating with the public at all. if you go back to important media failures like the iraq war or the financial crisis, on iraq there may have been a lot of reporters who were personally skeptical but there was a collective media failure in the way they covered it. so the idea that someone's personal views are always going to represent them in what they write or how they report, i don't think that computes, i think you would have to be dumb or tuned out to buy the crap that paul ryan is peddling there. >> and then there's the question of who is the real arnold schwarzenegger. thank you for joining me. >> thank you lawrence. >>> coming up.
, he saw the video of the 47 percent, but obama may not want to hear the voter said he would still give mitt romney a chance despite the video but he has to hear what he would do to help the unemployed in the big debate tomorrow night. mitt romney has a chance to reach out to the undecided voters. they are listening carefully. >>trace: mitt romney today making what appears for be a new pitch at spanish voters in the swing state of colorado. governor romney said that he would honor work visas that certain young illegal immigrants obligated through an executive order by president obama. you will recall that the governor has taken an aggressive stand on immigration in this campaign. in fact, he said he would actually veto legislation that provided a path to citizen to some immigrants. governor romney said and i quote, "the people who received the special visa the president has put if place which is a two-year vision 10 should expect the visa will continue to be valid. i will not take something they have purchased o now, live to carl cameron. is this a change, carl, or a change of emphasis

not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, an obama video surfaced from 14 years ago in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wealth. let's take a look. >> it is figuring out how we structure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least a certain level to make sure everybody has got a shot. >> mr. sadler, do you agree with this notion of redistributing wealth from one side of americans to another site? >> i do not agree with that at all. i do not know the context, the full context of what he is saying, but that was 15 years ago. >> 14. >> 14 years ago. i do not follow that philosophy. i do not see any evidence, in spite of mr. cruz's claims, of him manipulating the public, as he suggests. >> mr. cruz, please respond -- do you believe he is saying he does not believe in redistribution? >> of course president obama believes in wealth distribution. been clear is that he supports president obama. this president has engaged in reckless fiscal policies. we hav
of president obama are watching the video and saying, well, look, here's speaking differently to a crowd and saying things he has not said to a larger audience. is that a fair criticism or do voices point to the crowd he's speaking to? >> here's the first thing, speaker guinness hasher questioned whether we should be at war. that got significant pushback from people in that region, people specific in the wards. >> it was a racial point. it was about new orleans being below sea level. >> one second. one second. they were offended by that. anderson, here's the deal. speaking in front of a black audience, he was talking to the congressional black caucus. what he said, i heard him speak to the naacp in 2009 when he talked about charter school, things along those lines, he got criticized for lecturing african-americans. i didn't hear anybody white complain about that. that was all -- let's just be honest, politicians always talk in a different way, different approach, whether you are democrat or conservative. >> roland, what critics are saying his whole message of we are not a white america,
. >> we do know in 2008 the first video got 20 million views, and hundreds of people actually went down to florida and talked to their grandmas and grandpas to get them to vote for obama as it has been proven to help turn florida blue. the video that came out yesterday already has 2 million views. >> jennifer: that's fabulous. >> yeah it felt like we broke the internet for about five opinions. >> jennifer: what is going on there? why is this the best way to get the attention of millennial voters? >> okay. well i would say first i think the comedic videos they allow people to kind of have a point of entry that maybe they wouldn't necessarily have for some wonkier ideas. i think millennials are more aware of the obstacles that truly stan in our way. hope and change is back but it's more mature. >> jennifer: there is a poll out today from pew which says that youth engagement is falling and registration is declining for young voters under the age of 30. that they are 50% less likely essentially to be following the campaign closely, so hopefully what you are doing is
hours away. as a video surfaces overnight, forcing both sides to weigh in. it's all about 5-year-old comments made by candidate obama that some are calling racially divisive. but is it as damaging as romney's video about the 47%? >>> and potential progress for american airlines and its pilots, as the airline rushes to explain why seats have come loose. >>> also this morning, firing back. the small town tv anchor woman, now launching a national debate on weight and bullying, after a viewer attacked her for being fat. >>> and last dance. cut throat composition on the dance floor. but one all-star fails to find his hollywood ending. >>> good wednesday morning, everybody. we begin with that newly-released video, getting lots of attention before tonight's first presidential debate. >> it was released overnight by a conservative website. the speech was given to a largely african-american audience back in 2007, when mr. obama was still a senator. critics say the president was divisively pandering to the crowd, saying that the fog did not do enough to help residents of new orleans after
for them. >> he's sticking up for president obama. that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> it is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's comments didn't sit well with myers. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's talking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indication of where that comment has taken this campaign. the obama campaign is ham terrifying romney's comments in television ads in ohio. it appears to be taking a toll on romney's number. the gallup tracking poll showed
. a week after the fund-raising video was released by mother jones, obama has opened up a six-point lead. president obama was also in ohio today, delivering a knockout punch. and, oh, yes, he reminded ohio voters where mitt romney was when the state needed him at a critical time. >> when my opponent said we should just let detroit go bankrupt, that would have meant walking away from an industry that supports one in eight ohio jobs. it supports businesses in 82 of 88 ohio counties. so when he said that, i said, no, i'm going to bet on america. i'm betting on american workers. >> ohio's 7.2% unemployment rate is directly linked to the auto rescue, the loan. romney's campaign will live to regret "let detroit go bankrupt," that editorial, that of course he pinned in a detroit newspaper. according to cnn, a longtime gop strategist called obama's advantage on the automobile loan a kick in the blanks for the romney campaign. you can fill in the blanks for yourself. i think you know what he said. romney is also still struggling to undo the damage done by ads highlighting his record at bain capit
about secret maybe not so secret videos of president obama saying things before he was elected president of the united states. you saw this on fox news last night. a video of president obama giving a speech to a group of black ministers in which he engaged in some pandering, adopted stronger african-american accent. the problem is he's already been elected president. you can't argue against obama saying don't vote for him, he has a secret plan to destroy america. he's been president for four years. quite seriously, you have to run against the obama record. you can't convince americans that there's something more to be frightened of in an obama second term than they already saw when he had 60 votes in the senate. >> i think when conservatives do that and certainly that videotape was so hyped and then there really wasn't much in it. it really takes away the credibility from the conservative argument. what conservatives ought to be spending all of their time on is why our ideas work better to lift people out of poverty, to grow jobs to make this country stronger and better. that's what cons
they couldn't go any lower not only are they pretending that video that president obama's father is actually not kenyan. that's a new one. that's unique, but that his mom was in porn. unreal. let's bring in michael hastings who is covering the obama campaign, and he's in nevada with them right now. i have one quick question for you, michael. what is president obama's campaign reaction? are they amused, chagrined? what is their reaction. >> my reaction, look, they're taking it very seriously. especially the voter suppression efforts. they have what is called a voter protection officer in each of the major swing states on election day. there will be teams of voter protection volunteers to make sure that everyone who shows up at the poll to make sure they can vote if they're legally allowed to vote. and when you listen to the stump speeches, especially michelle obama's sump stump speech encouraging people to vote. they will come home and drive the points home, especially in communities of latinos and black communities, but that has a huge effort using the pulpit and the grassroots networks that
's showdown, just hours after a video of him from 2007 surfaced on a conservative website. then-senator obama is heard praising controversial pastor jeremiah wright. and accusing the federal government of not doing enough to help new orleans recover from hurricane katrina. the president's campaign calls the video a desperate attack. >>> meantime, there's signs that mitt romney is ready to offer specifics about his tax plan tonight. all part of a plan to cut tax rates by 20% across the board. >>> and a scathing, new report says a bold, new approach to fighting terrorism has been a big waste of billions of taxpayer dollars. fusion centers were created after the attacks of 9/11. so law enforcement on every level could share intelligence. but senate investigators say those centers have done nothing to stop terror plots. >>> american airlines says wrongly installed clamps and not sabotage caused seats to become loose on three flights. those seats and everything from the smell of smoke to landing gear issues have forced american flights to divert offcourse. pilots can finally resume contract negoti
quarterbacking. let's take a look at something now, mollet. an old video of barack obama resurfaced on fox channel yesterday. it features presidential candidate barack obama talking to an african-american audience back in 2007, about victims of hurricane katrina. first, let's listen to the clip. >> contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> people asked me whether race was the reason response was so slow. i said this administration was color-blind in its incompetence. but -- but, everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> now, nbc and several other media outlets also covered this speech back in 2007. so mollet, what did your listeners have to say on this? >> in large part, they said, who thought this was a good idea. and they're saying it actually could backfire for the conservatives here, because if a republican could fail, as was perceived back then, george bush, failed people who were most in need, goes back to the 47% comment, the undecided voters, middle class, those
, angry. >> reporter: the video also features obama extolling his then-reverend, jeremiah wright. >> a guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. he's a friend and a great leader. >> reporter: the obama campaign points out that in 2007, then-senator obama spoke out quite a bit in the senate on the issue of disaster relief for the gulf coast. and that's true, george. although, he did speak about it a little differently in the senate. george? >> jake, thanks. >>> let's add in david muir, already inside the debate hall. and political contributor, matthew dowd here with me. unlikely mitt romney is going to bring up this tape tonight. but the governor is behind nationally. and especially in the key battleground states. do they think they have to shake things up tonight? >> reporter: they absolutely do, george. i talked to a half-dozen advisers over the next 24 hours. and they agree. they have to establish three things. he has to offer a blistering critique of the president. the second thing, though, is criticism within his own party that he needs to offer more d
. but critics say he has made too many missteps come back. >> he really didn't. president obama has to, begin with, changing his story. his administration described the crime that had taken place in benghazi is related to the video. it wasn't video. it was an act of terrorism. this story has changed. this is the background. so much for the rest is a good deal of revision of history. cheryl: you think the critics can get past the fact that he is not meeting with benjamin netanyahu or any other foreign leaders. he is going on talk shows. he is on "the view." he is going to dinners here in new york. is that really an appropriate thing to do during the general assembly when you have a crisis in the middle east? >> when you appear on "the view", you don't care about international diplomacy. a long time now, everything has been tethered to his campaign. "the view" gets him voters. we know that. president netanyahu does not vote in this election. so, really, i think you can describe the foreign policy of barack obama as a foreign policy of david axelrod. it's all tied to a selection. cheryl: you men
, as romney plays face the camera doing his best damage control over that 47% video. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> and, cut. very good. that was marginally convincing. maybe a little more -- tell you what here's an example of a politician speaking this afternoon in bowling green with genuine authenticity and commitment. >> my opponent may think it's fair that someone who makes $20 million a year like he does pays a lower rate than a teacher, i disagree. i don't think that's fair. i don't think it helps grow our economy. i refuse to ask middle class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or looking after their kids just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. we're not going to do that. >> dear me. did we mention ohio voting starts in six days? i'm delighted to be joined now by former ohio governor ted strickland with us from columbus. good afternoon, sir. >> good afternoon. >> governor there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make

, not the video, isn't it? >> i mean, it is amazing to me that the right is still, five years after barack obama became a presidential candidate -- >> five years after i saw that very video. >> the moment, if there was a moment the whole jeremiah wright association and all this racial stuff that's there, if there was a moment that that was going to hurt and sink barack obama politically, it was april of 2008. there was a serious crisis in barack obama's campaign. he delivered a speech on race, a speech to be remembered for years to come and that put the issue to rest for 70%, 80% of the public. but there's this sliver of the public on the right still living in april of 200. it's a real problem for the republican party. when you're a month away from the election and your candidate is losing and this is what you're counting on as the big bombshell, you're out of touch with where the rest of the country is. >> right. jimmy, republicans don't have a lot going for them right now, but they seized on a recent comment by joe biden, who else, who said the middle class has been buried. i wonder if they've
ways. but i think that 47% tape was lethal. now, he has not lost, and barack obama is not a great campaigner, and when it is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. -- mitt is in practice, he is a pretty good debater. but because the 47% video was truly genuine, because it was him talking and not knowing he was taped, and played into every stereotype of barack obama saw to paint about him, it has had an enormous effect. >> evan? >> it should not be bad politics -- to be a bad politician should not necessarily heard you when people hate politicians. but romney has not been able to turn that into our virtue. there is the reliability problem, and if there is what nina is talking about -- the film makes him look like he is writing off half the country. even though charles says he has to go substantive, and i wish he would do tax reform -- i don't think he is going to do that -- or find some way in the very end to convince people what he is, which the actress is, a decent human being -- she actually is, decent human being. >> romney said, but wt my het aches for theeople i've seen an

deal out of it. >> and are making a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's comments. you know, i don't -- if president obama and his campaign team had a choice, i think they would rather joe biden not have used that phrase in relation to the last four years. that said, i think the life cycle of a gaffe now, andrea is so small it kind of rises up and becomes a huge thing for 15 minutes or one day, and then it disappears. my guess is, at 9:01 p.m. tonight when the debate starts, this will not be as big a deal and there will be new things to talk about, new issues to digest, again, not a great moment for joe biden and clearly one the white house would have rather he not have said. i just don't know that, you know, in two weeks time we're talking about it. >> all right. we'll see what -- whether there's a new gaffe or two or three to replace that one tonight. thank you very much. see you later. joining me in denver, stephanie cutter, deputy campaign manager for the president's re-election effort. where were you when you heard joe biden yesterday? >> i don't re
, that secret video, the obama team is running it just in ohio. now they have gone out in seven other swing states with it. republicans i talked to acknowledges it's working. and that's why we see these numbers in ohio stretching out. what does romney do now? we see this morning he has a new ad where he is speaking to the camera for 60 seconds, but is it too late? >> the reason that 47% is working is because it's new information. we don't want to hear the same thing over and over again. voters pay attention to it. >> look at this ad. for the first time romney is speaking directly to the people, is that too late? >> in a simple answer, yes. that should have been done three or four months ago. he solidified his control back in april. why is this ad only running now? when we look back at this campaign, i think we will realize you can't have the same impact as you did then. >> so did they not use that advantage? >> you can use it up to a point, and the fact is if you look at the numbers up to the republican convention, mitt romney was only a couple points behind in ohio. nationwide, it was 1%.
debate, duelling videos were released featuring president obama and paul ryan, but is either a game changer? and team romney seized on an unforced error made by joe biden on the campaign trial. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> kristen welker and peter alexander are with the obama and romney campaigns in these final hours before the first match-up, the debate tonight. we begin with kristen in nevada with the president. the president will travel to colorado in just a matter of hours. good morning. >> good morning. that's right. president obama will take off for denver in just a few hours. i'm told he'll have a little bit of down time with the first lady before the debate. he'll also do a walk through of the venue. here's how it's going to work. president obama will be given the first question. mitt romney will have the final word tonight. the debate will be broken up into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. i
that this was not in reaction to the film. lou: he's referring to the almost car toonish anti-islam youtube video that the president and his administration have blamed from the outset despite the claims by intelligent sources that the obama administration knew within a matter of hours that the assassination of am ambassador stevens and three other americans was carried out by terrorists with ties to an affiliate of al-qaeda. now, two weeks after jay's initial denial of what the white house knew, some high ranking obama officials are beginning to contra digit the story that the president and his administration tried to sell the american public. defense secretary, leon panetta, secretary of state hillary clinton now conceding it was an act of terror. still no word, no correction from the man who steered the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on whe

50-plus percent and make sure i become the next president. >> reporter: in the wake of that video romney out with a new ad. >> president obama and i care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: tonight the president continued to take aim. >> i don't believe we can get very far with leader whose write off half the nation with a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. i don't see a lot of victims. i see hard-working ohioans. that's what i see. >> reporter: also revealed in the new poll a huge deficit for romney among women. the president with a 25% lead in ohio and 20% lead in florida. we asked about his most powerful surrogate his wife. >> we heard from your wife, ann who responded to criticism within your own party. >> stop it. you want to try it get in the ring. >> i know you heard it all before. you heard your wife that fired up about the incoming fire. i think it's what you say to your wife. >> ann is a very strong character. she doesn't like when people go after me. i'm just
with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a little bit, you could cause this race to narrow. that's the last thing they want. >> thanks very much to both of you. and later in our hour, our guest, a man who once said mormonism is a cult said this race is not over and he's got one thing he says mitt romney to do to turn the race around. and mahmoud ahminedjad addressed some of the u.n. general assembly today. was he trying to invoke john lennon? full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

-qaeda-related or linked attack in libya or not and the obama administration hanging up on the video for a long time. >> well, when i saw ambassador rice continue to say that the attacks were the result of a spontaneous effort and our relationship with israel is at a high, you know, i shutter to think, you know, why -- why the administration would go down that road and say that when they knew that the libyan president was saying something different. hillary clinton was saying something different. clearly in my experience, when you have two people show up with shoulder-fired rockets at a moment's notice, it's not spontaneous. it's clear to me that it was a planned and calculated event. >> greta: and i should add, you are a montana state senator. state senator, thank you, sir, for joining us. >> well, thank you very much. greta, have great day. >> greta: thank you, sir. straight ahead, she stole the show in tampa. tonight ann romney is here to go on the record. no one knows mitt romney better. you will too. mrs. romney is next. also she's a republican, she's black, running for congress, and could be t

the video. it would have been much different. they are clearly letting obama get away with trouncing the person here to soothe relations, maybe a decent strategy to keep middle east mr. from boiling over. >> what was wrong were the speech, he was talking about terrorists and radical crazy people as if they care about it. he was speaking as if you just understood these things, we can sit down and talk, you will stop doing it. they don't care. the argument was completely wasted and the speech he should have given was more like netanyahu was giving which is serious speech playing out the threat to the country and western world. >> on the contrary i think he put it to our allies if egypt is still an ally. he put it to them. do not try and ask for our assistance offer wanted us to stay and help you if you don't take care of your violence problems. >> it was so effective that president morsi accused us of having a war against islam. >> the one thing he was supposed to do is make sure that american personnel and property was protected in egypt after an hour long conversation, that has been

. the campaign trail persona is that we see are very scripted, very sanitized. what obama is saying in that video doesn't sound nearly as reveltory to me. those are the kinds of things that candidates say during primary campaigns that are a little more passionate and emotional than they are necessarily during the general election. but it is not -- again, it is not really the equivalent of this small group romney video that had him saying things that he would not really be found saying in public. >> it seems like, you know, as campaigns become more and more scripted that sites like yours and maybe news organizations, they're going to try to find these tapes where the candidate is talking off the cuff. >> well, our site, of course, is a news site. we are all about the journalism. we found this video through the investigative reporting efforts of our d.c. bureau chief david corn and, yes, i think every -- every journalist and every candidate learned or should have learned in 2008 with the makaka moment involving former senator george allen that there is video of everything. if there is more than two
